The incident unfolded when the girls heard a desperate cry for help while heading in from their swim.


“I heard someone yelling for help in the distance. I was looking around for her and I spotted her, about 50 feet out from where I was,” Zoe, 13, told Global News.


The distressed woman, identified as Belinda Stone from London, England, informed Zoe that her husband, Robert Stone, was even further out and struggling to swim.
